The 1st Raptors thread since VC was in town
Since noone. anywhere. ever. talks about the Raptors I just wanted to give them props as they will be finishing the regular season with the best record in franchise history.
I really hope they beat the Wizards in the 1st round (I think they will) so they can finally get on the national spotlight against the Heat. Derozan, Valancunias and Lowry, among others have quietly put together an excellent season up in Canada and I hope they can make some noise in the playoffs.
And yes I realize they they wouldn't even make the playoffs if they were located in western Canada but lets not take that away from them haha
They are 10th in attendance in the nba,of course people,well at least here in Canada,talk about the raptors!
With that said part of me is happy that they made the playoffs,and believes everything is possible.Part of me wishes they had a chance for Wiggins,instead of possibly getting massacred in 4 games in front of national audience vs the heat in second round.Whatever,go raptors!
If the Raptors play their cards right and keep developing Valanciunas and Ross, Wiggins might just come over to join the Raptors in free agency in a few years, he's much more likely to join an organisation that has been making the playoffs than a terrible team, even if it is his hometown.
Love to see the "have nots" rise up...and though it is the east they didn't exactly back in. That is a decent record they have put together. As a Kings fan, though, I'd be willing to accept a playoff ticket or two as a thanks for taking Rudy Gay's contract of their hands...
